Andrew Luck feels confident that he'll be able to return to the Indianapolis Colts' lineup for the 2018 season. 

Luck underwent surgery this past January for an injury that he suffered back in 2015, and tried to return to the field earlier this season but was sidelined when his shoulder wasn't responding to light throws. 

On Friday Luck spoke to the media for the first time since returning from the Netherlands, where he worked with a therapist to rehabilitate his injured shoulder. He said that he did not undergo anymore procedures while he was overseas and doesn't expect he'll need anymore surgery (quotes via

"I feel stronger, more stable, more confident in it. It's better," Luck said.

"I'm preparing to throw the football, if that makes sense," he said. "It's a progression to get back to that point.

"A lot of it has to do with me. Getting my strength back to a high level -- I still have a ways to go there. I don't want to skip any steps along the way."

"And I do not think I need another surgery. I'm on the right path, I think I'm on the right progression, trusting in that. So we're in the process of preparing to throw the football."

"I plan on being ready for everything," he said referring to the offseason schedule. I don't see [the 2018 season] being in jeopardy at all," Luck added.

"Like any guy who is injured, it's not easy to watch your teammates go play," he said. "It feels weird, but I don't feel like I'm part of this team right now."
